What our Visitors Say about Majjistral Park

I think this is the only place on this island where I have felt in tune with nature! It’s a treasure we all need to take care of!- Ruth Sarah Farrell
What a wonderful gem of a place - it deserves all the support it can get!- Jeni Caruana
3 of us visited Majjistraal Park 20th June early morning. We were visiting Malta from Canada and Scotland. We really loved exploring the beautiful area below the cliffs. We met one of the rangers who was most welcoming. He pointed out Zitting cisticola. We heard Sardinian warblers and saw a Blue rock thrush (we don't have them at home!). A great morning out!- Helen Skuodas
Just finished a twelve week course on sustainable gardening given by Peter Gatt. This was a most enjoyable and eye opening course to all those who have gardens and natural habitat close to their heart. I found the lecturer to be very knowledgeable on the subject and had the ability to pass on his information with clarity, structure and why not.....a dose of humour! I would strongly recommend this course to aspiring gardeners.- John Coleiro
